cuffthis Likes this wine: (88 points)
January 5, 2014 - I've drank a lot of this wine and the 2011 vintage over the past 6 months. When I first tasted it, I liked it so much that I've bought two cases of it. When its good, its almost a 90 point wine. However, there is an enormous amount of bottle variation with this offering (even within the same case) that it leaves me shaking my head.
Tonight's bottle was crimson in color. The nose revealed Strawberry, Bing Cherry and moderate toast aromas. The mouth feel brought more cherry flavors with a hint of raspberry. The finish was moderate and the acidity was adequate. This bottle was one of the better ones and it showed the complexity and integration of fruit and tannins that made me like this wine in the beginning.1,189 views
